When I look at my usage, it says I have sent and received 204 text messages. However, when I go through the list of texts, there’s only 76 listed. Why aren’t these two numbers the same?

A SMS message is a maximum of 160 characters (less if you use emoji), and are split into 160 character portions. Thus, if you send or receive long messages, Koodo will count more than 1 message for each you send or receive.
